From my experience with Okteta I would say the (detailed) feature list should 
be on UserBase (and in the manual).

IMHO the overview on the apps pages should contain a rather non-detailed 
longer description, kind of abstract about the purpose of the program. The 
kind you also find in the package description of a program (so it could be the 
same and consistent if drawn from the upcoming about/metadata file :) ).

Especially for bigger programs a complete and well done feature list can be 
very long and needs more work to get it done, so most code developers might 
not find the time and interest to maintain that. At least I know I have to be 
pushed to update that little feature list page I once started for Okteta on
